    Well, as the title says, I'm having trouble with the Shaders mod. The problem I'm having is that it just doesn't seem to work :/ I've installed OptiFine, as the installation guide says, and that works fine. But if I add the Shaders mod to it, the shaders won't load. It does give me a GUI option for "shaders", and I can add shaderpacks, but it just won't load... I've downloaded the correct version of OptiFine, which is Ultra D5 for Minecraft version 1.4.6/1.4.7, and I've also tried using the Magic Launcher, but it just won't work D:<

    Anyone else having this problem, or is there someone who knows a fix for this?

    (Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT. It's crappy, I know.)

    Well, I got the shaders mod working yesterday, but I wouldn't recommend using it if you're on a non-NASA computer. I went from 60~80 to 7 fps =|

    Yes. That is exactly it. Also, I just found that the drop in fps heavily depends on the shader you're using (should have known that =\). The one I used first was insane, but now I've found one that 'only' cuts my fps to about 25~30

    I just don't use any shaders. I can't seem to install them right and I don't want to use magic launcher. :p

    It's not that difficult to add them into 'regular' Minecraft, actually.
    In your .minecraft you create a map named shaderpacks (if it's not there already)
    Then you create a new folder in that map (doesn't matter what you call it) and unzip your zip file in there.

    You should then have [.minecraft] --> [shaderpacks] --> [folder] --> [shaders] --> (stuff.fsh + stuff.vsh)
    [...] is a foldername, (...) are filenames, but I think that speaks for itself :p

    If you did this right and it still won't work, you've probably installed the shader mod itself wrong.

    i think your problem is this:

    1. The shaders vsh and fsh files are not in the shaders folder of the zip(your shader zip)
    if it isn't in there, do it
    2. Try using GLSL Shaders OF. the one that you link to may not work
    3. i have no idea (quoted from the Medic in TF2)

    it usually stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration. (the and isn't in there because it isn't really important; you should have learned that at school) and by NASA computer that is another way in saying a really good computer

    in some eyes, it is. in others, its crappy.
    again, people need really good PCs to run shaders. its a memory hog
    i dont really LOVE shaders, i just think its OKAY. the shadows really get in my way sometimes...
